The LA240 Loop System provides a practical solution for hearing aid users to more easily listen to their TV or Audio equipment via the “T” or “Loop” program of their hearing aid.
With no direct connection between the user and TV or Audio equipment the user can move freely within the looped area and listen comfortably to a TV or audio equipment without the distractions of normal listening.
The Loop System is used in conjunction with a hearing aid with a “T” or “Loop” program found on many ‘behind the ear’ or ‘in the ear’ hearing aids.
The Loop system picks up the sound from a TV via a direct connection or microphone and feeds it to the amplifier. The sound is then passed to a loop of wire around the listening area, which in turn transmits the sound inductively, “magnetic sound waves”, to a hearing aid with the loop facility.
The user may then adjust the loop volume or tone to suit their hearing preference without affecting others.
The Loop System is supplied with either Loop Cable or Loop Pad.
Loop cable is placed around a room that you want to listen in. The sound can be heard anywhere inside the “looped” area and sometimes just outside the loop as well.
A Loop Pad is an alternative to loop cable and is used to create a localised or portable system to avoid interference with other systems or where confidentiality is required.
If you choose this system you will receive:
Amplifier: 180 x 140 x 42mm
We have used this product happily for some years. But now very disappointed to discover when ordering a new amplifier kit it does not include remote control. (Even though the box shows picture of amplifier with remote) Sarabec Technical Department response: We are sorry that you felt the need to return the system because it is no longer supplied with a remote control. Our website and literature no longer have any mention of the remote control previously supplied and the packaging clearly shows a label saying that the remote function has been discontinued. Functionality wise the system is still the same and is the best system available for the money.
Excellent Machine, very easy to set-up. Works superbly well even 6' outside of the loop. For others in the room the television volume is now about 1/3 of the level that I needed prior to installing the LA240. Should have had this equipment years ago. Big Bonus, my wife doesn't need to shout at me any more!!
I have had this fitted by my local Social Services. Two words describe it - absolutely brilliant - and it's transformed watching TV with my wife who has normal hearing. The TV is connected to our stereo system via an the Earphones connection. So in order to not to disturb neighbours its set at a level my wife says is OK. This means I miss things to such an extent, I'm constantly asking my wife - "what did just say", which is driving her daft. Since this equipment has been fitted I can hear clearly what is being said on TV. Last night my wife said, did you hear that?. I replied yes, so she asked "What did they say", so I told. Boots on the other foot now. Its connected to the TV by an 'Toslink' (optical) connector, so if I watch TV on my own I don't need to turn on the stereo system to listen as I can listen through the loop & my Hearing Aids. I would certainly recommend this system to transform TV viewing & listening. Social Services did check I was able to benefit from the system first.
Brilliant product which i use for all my domestic installations. Comes supplied as a kit with just about every connection method for modern televisions and audio equipment.
